”The Word became flesh and made His
dwelling among us.” John 1:14. Jesus Christ is the Word if
God.  “The first MAN, Adam, BECAME A LIVING SOUL.”
The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.” 1 Corinthians
15:45. Jesus Christ is the second Adam. Jesus gives of His Spirit,
the Holy Spirit, to dwell in those who have received Him and who OBEY
Him. The born-again children of God are a temple of the Holy Spirit,
Jesus, who dwells in them. They have the Word of God IN them.
Many people profess to be Christians
and they have Bible knowledge in their heads, but they do not have
Jesus in their hearts. They do not have the Word of God in them.
The Bible is not the Word of God. It is
the Scriptures. Having the Scriptures in your head does not give you
life. You must have the Spirit of Christ, the Holy Spirit dwelling in
The Holy Spirit is implanted in you
when you RECEIVE Jesus. We read in James 1:21 “Therefore, putting
aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility
receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.”
Bible study and indoctrination cannot
change you into a child of God. Jesus changes you when you receive
and obey Him. You are born again of the Spirit of God, and the Word
of God comes and dwells in you. That is the reality of Emmanuel,
Christ dwelling among and in those who have RECEIVED Him and who
FOLLOW and OBEY Him. They are His sheep. They listen to His voice and
they follow Him. It is through communion with Jesus, that we become
like Him, through prayer and obedience, not through Bible study.
The modern church is dead. They have
Bibles, doctrines, preachers and facilities, but they do not have the
Word of God in them. Jesus does not dwell in them. Jesus is the
Spirit. He gives LIFE to those in whom He dwells.
Do you have the Word of God in you?
Does Jesus dwell in you?
May Jesus bless you.
